I haven’t been hiding from you or anything. I promise. I am sort of active on my facebook pages, and my profile.
I just wanted to update everyone on what is going on.
So here’s the happs cats
Cause its the weird cat GIF i could find, that is why 😄
Anyways, so my facebook page yesterday hit 900 likes! which is insane all its own, so right now a ton of amazing authors, whom i ADORE, offered to donate some serious awesome prizes. The BIG giveaway for 800 likes is still going on, the three signed paperback one, I just wanted to say also if you were planning on doing a review for it you got about 17 more days I believe. I know it seems sort of unfair for me to ask so much for those prizes, but I am trying to get more notice of Damaged, one of the best ways is Reviews. TRUST ME when I say, I never use to look at review when I first got into indie books, but farther into them, I did, and I realized a LOT of people pay attention to them – hence why I started a review blog because I wanted to help out these amazing authors i had been reading. So I hope you know I am not just doing as a ploy to get people to buy Damaged, therefore making me “rich” its really about the reviews. If you honest to God cannot afford the 2.99 but still really want to do the review with in the time period, we can talk I swear I don’t bite, but look at this way: Skip a coffee, or energy drink one day, and you probably have enough to get Damaged. okay okay okay I am going to stop being an ass
^^^^^ boo on me
Okay so there is that.
I was going to do like a week long of Flash Giveaways on Facebook, but currently without adding any of my own prizes, I am sitting on like i think almost 20 prizes… I was hoping to spotlight the authors/bloggers who were helping me out. So I might do package of prizes, and do a mix of spotlights as well. BUT I will not be able to organize that right now…
This weekend happens to be VERY busy for me. I am working on Friday, I amgraduatingcollegeonSaturday *gulps*, and working again on Sunday. SO i am going to TRY to organize it after work on Sunday
AND on top of all these giveaways, HEALED’S COVER WILL BE REVEALED ON MAY 5TH!
I also just finished another beta’s notes, I am feeling a lot better about the book as a whole now, and also some other news.
Oh and you can sign up here to help, author, reader, blogger, blah, blah, blah: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1oUzgDkm07gAE0-0gBVKe9U7ahksasqvbprZw1AwoUXI/viewform
And I am just going to get into position here….
Yes I am hiding….
So, the way I write and I am sure everyone else writes, is by inspiration and I have talked to my friends about this and they agree, never force yourself to write a story you are not ready to write. So with that said I know those who have read Damaged, LOVED Nixie, and while her book was supposed to be book two anyways Elijah’s story just cried out for me to pay attention to it, so I did, and I reworked it, and Healed would be second, Broken (Nixie’s book tentatively) would be third. UM. here’s the thing
Nixie’s been pretty quiet. I know what I want to do for the second half of her story. I just don’t know how to get there. And there is a lot more that has to go into her book for the entire world as well that I am just not sure the series is ready for yet. If that makes sense. I can’t go into details because I am not going to give away spoilers of my own books XD. So as of today I am making the tentative, but most likely decision to push back Nixie’s book once again. Trust me I couldn’t feel worse about this, but I can honestly tell you from responses that I have gotten from betas you will LOVE, the character book three will be based off of. So here is how I am seeing the series as a whole and how they will be released
Damaged – Audrey and Stone’s story – already released
Healed – Elijah and Valentine’s story – July 2014
Stolen – Drake and Xavier’s story (a Prequel) – October 2014 (tentative)
Tamed – Amani and Benedict’s story – TBD
Broken – Nixie and Dallas’s story – TBD
Burned – Marcus and Althea’s story – TBD
OKAY BEFORE we get the pitch forks and what nots, Calm down please!
Drake and Xavier story, yes is about two gentlemen, I don’t know how people will respond to this, honestly this is NOT IN ANYWAY supposed to be a typical M/M romance, where its (as others have put it) gay sex all the time. It’s not, honestly its supposed to be an Adult book, but I don’t think I will be going into very exploit details on their love making 😉 I am saying this because I don’t want people to be automatically turned off by the book because of the characters its about.
I am writing their story because I believe it needs to be told, I WANT to tell it, so I am going to. This is not necessary for the entire series, you do not need to read this book in order to move forward into the series, nor do you have to read it first in order to understand what is happening in the entire series. There will be more in depth history of how the paranormal world became the way it is now. BUT i highly suggest when this book finally releases that Damaged is read first, why? Because the timeline I am writing out happens before Damaged, but also goes a little bit past Damaged as well. So there may be spoilers for Damaged, I am not sure yet as I have no finished writing it yet. ALSO it may or may not be a novella. I don’t know because I don’t write towards a certain word count or page number. I just write until their story is over. So yeah.
Wow I ramble.
So I think I covered everything for now ^.^
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR AWESOME SUPPORT, I wouldn’t be anything without you ❤
